Enhance your communication with Maya by learning how splines translate to movement and you'll start working with the program instead of against it.  After this course you'll utilize the maximum efficiency of Maya's graph editor. This entry-level class is perfect for 2D animators, motion graphic artists, illustrators, and anyone interested in learning a helpful new skill!

This is a great class! Basic enough for beginner animators but detailed enough for even seasoned pros to learn new ways of tackling the graph editor. Tabia goes into great detail on WHAT timing and spacing are, WHY they are such important concepts, and HOW to us them effectively. Definitely recommend the class to any animator out there!
